Dome Goliath II 10 Person Tent $160 In Store (RRP $549, Online $240) @ Macpac

960

Please clearly note that the link will take you to Website where the price is showing up as A$240, but inside the shop, they have a clearence tag where the price is stated as A$160. I bought the tent from the Preston, VIC Macpac store. I am note sure when the deal will end.Says Clearence on the shop board, so may be it will run till stocks end.

Here is a screenshot taken from the shop and the purchase receipt, hope you can price-match it other Macpac shops or some other shops that price matches on tent ?

    Darn! That's a lot of tent for that little money!

      No it isn't; it's about standard for "sales" price at Anaconda or Ray's. Btw Anaconda now owns Macpac; I'm pretty certain this is the same tent Anaconda sells (I've got one myself; it does the job I suppose)

        For what it's worth, Super Retail Group (owns BCF) now owns Macpac, not Anaconda.

          Spotlight Group owns Spotight, Anaconda and Mountain Designs.

          They are a competitor to Super Retail Group who own BCF, Supercheap Auto, Rebel and Macpac

      You could be right… it's 4.6m x 3m… a tad larger than a standard bedroom. "10 people" laid in like a tetris puzzle… maybe.
      Still, $160 for a faimly size tent isn't bad at all!
      Deal gets a + from me :).

      In tent-speak, a "person" is a standard unit of floor space equivalent to approximately 2m x 0.5m

        Anyone who gets sucked in and buys without seeing a tent erected has cause for recourse under 'not suitable for purpose' consumer laws I'd have thought. It's a nonsense claim.

      Standard tent sizing system.
      Halve the number and you're close to something realistic.
      Anyone who has bought a tent before understands this.

        It makes sense for hiking tents where you have 2,3 or sometimes 4 people squished together; but somehow that same system got extrapolated out to base camp tents where it doesn't make sense.

        There is no standard, for the reason that you've outlined. Different uses require different standards. Personally I think no standard is preferable to a nonsense one designed to deceive the gullible. For some reason this 10 person tent claim reminds me of the 28 "seat" Mini

      Maybe uses the same calculations for occupancy as the lift/elevator companies! ;-)

    Damn that's great value, good find OP

    You'd certainly want to be on at least a first name basis with your 9 other occupants.

    What’s the setup like for this tent?

    Might need bed bunks deal to fit 10 ppl in there

    With tents U want to get away with as small as possible, especially in colder months

    Had mine for 5y and it's still pretty good, seen a dozen trips.

    Some bloke fell on it and bent a pole so maybe it's time to replace at this price..

  •  

    Real nice, had another brand but I just bought this one +1

    •  

      was there much stock? which store? hoping to get out tomorrow morning to get one

  •  

    I bought it from Preston two weeks ago, I think 10 people will fit in easily,

    •  

      You can fit 28 people in a Mini if you're desperate too. Comfortably they hold ~5.

      The recommended capacity of this tent is 6. About right imo. Personally I wouldn't want 5 adults in my 4x3m canvas tourer.

    is it hard to set up? I go camping with kids (I'm the only adult tho) and they aren't much help with setting up and the video says you need 2 people to set up…

    Looks a little time consuming with the varying size poles and what not but I imagine once you've done it a few times you should get quicker at it…?

    Edit: saw this comment re this tent on a camping forum, makes me a bit concerned "Helped sis in law put one of these up, what a night mare, 3 experienced tent camping blokes and an hour to finally put the thousand plus poles together with the right corner pieces etc. Never again"

      Maybe that's why it's cheap then?

      Thanks for saving me the trouble!

  •  

    ended up buying one… next real option is probably a coleman instant up 10 for ~500 bucks.

    Camperdown NSW store would not do it for $160 unfortunately. They claimed it was below cost price (despite not looking). The best price they would do is -20% off the $240 so I got it for $192.

    $32 more than the OP.

    About 5 left in stock.

    Got one thanks op.

      Was it $160?

        It was $240 in store but they price matched it. This is in macpac at waurn ponds in Geelong. I called earlier to make sure they had stock and they would price match. Sounded like they've had a few left.
        Tried bcf but they would only price match online price and not store price.
        Ops receipt definitely helped me at macpac however. So kudos babebunny.

    Took the last one from Nunawading,vic. Cheers

  •  

    Correct me if I'm wrong but this looks like a cheaply made tent.

  •  

    Got one from waurn ponds in Geelong. They had 10 in stock near the front counter. They knew the Preston price and were happy to match it.
